US v. Hagerman, 08-2670

In a case involving criminal sanctions against a corporation for violations of the Clean Water Act, appeals from dismissal of the government's petition seeking relief from alleged probation violations are dismissed where: 1) an individual defendant was not a party to the probation-violation proceeding and no order against him was entered; and 2) the corporate defendant, an LLC, could not be represented pro se by one of its members, but, like a corporation, was required to be represented by counsel.
